The Whaler Kaanapali Beachfront Condo Reviews

This is the best of the four Whaler units we have stayed in (so far). Love the location. The remodel and furnishings are top notch. We even used the beach umbrella that was on the lanai. Cindy was extremely helpful in getting us set up for our stay. We hope we’ll be able to return to 519 in the future. Mahalo.

This newly remolded unit is stunning! Everything is top notch. The location is wonderful - we saw so many whales from the balcony. Cindy, the manager, is friendly and helpful. She will do anything to help if you have a need. Don't worry about bringing basics on the first day (other than coffee). Toilet paper, paper towel, trash bags, dishwasher pods and laundry pods all provided. We would love to stay here again.

This was my family’s first trip to The Whaler, and I’m SO glad we found it! We absolutely loved our stay here, and Cindy, the property manager was instrumental in securing this, as well as helping us throughout our stay. We were surprised by how great the amenities were, having come from a full service resort before our stay here. There are beach chairs, and umbrellas, some to rent and some complementary. The condo is fantastic, great views, and very comfortable. Favorite part is sleeping with the slider open and listening to the ocean waves all night long. The location is amazing, with Whaler’s Village right next door, for great food and shopping. Black Rock is a short walk down the beach too. Cannot wait to plan our return!

I booked this unit while going to the island for the Maui Marathon, it was conveniently located near the starting line. The unit was beautiful with an incredible location surrounded by shops, restaurants and the grocery store. I enjoyed many home cooked meals with fruits from the farmers markets on the huge patio. The views were stunning. The staff were were friendly and helpful. Looking forward to booking again next April!

Cindy was very easy to communicate with, friendly and accommodating. We don’t usually get to meet the owners or managers so it was a pleasant surprise! We enjoyed watching the beautiful sunsets from the convenient tables in the bbq area. We would definitely rent this unit again!

The property is gorgeous. The unit is large, well appointed and in the perfect location. Right next to Whalers Village, lots of shops and restaurants. Whale Watching, Snorkeling and Sunset tours pick you up right on beach near The Whaler. We can’t wait to come back!

We love the Whaler! Cindy was an Awesome host! She is very prompt to answer emails and questions you have. The unit was very nice, clean and well appointed. I think it looks much better in person than the photos depict! This unit is very close to the elevator for those who don't want a long walk. We had zero problems finding garage parking. Loved that Cindy makes sure the unit has cleaning supplies and laundry detergent as well as a nice selection of spices, oils and cooking utensils. The King-size bed is very comfortable, and my husband loved the strong shower head and endless hot water! We got to meet Cindy and John while we were there, and Cindy truly is the Whaler Ambassador! You won't regret booking this unit!

Cindy was super helpful and accomodating. I strongly recommend her as listing manager. This unit was our favorite this time around at Maui. We also travelled to the Big Island, and stayed at 4 different places. Overall I'd say you cannot go wrong with Kaanapali and this apartment building is at center of the action. There are 2 towers in this complex and they are part of a hotel complex. Some units have individual owners and thus rented via VRBO. There is a resort fee of $25 per day that was not part of the listing. Overall these buildings are well maintained (although perhaps built in 80s). The yard was emaculate. Swimming pool was small but very clean (who needs swiming pool when you have that beach though). Parking was free (resort fee was not for parking). The unit has a very large balcony (like 150 sq ft). The unit was renovated. It also had a nice king size bed. Kitchen was very well equipped. There was a sofa bed too. The only old thing in the unit were Kenmore washer/dryer, which I think they will outlast me. They were built like a tank.

My husband and daughter and I stayed for a week in Cindy's unit and it had everything we needed. Having a kitchen and the grills on the grounds was so important because we like the ease of eating our own food on the lanai. Best view of the beach! My husband also liked seeing the mountains to the left. The waves put on quite a show for us this week so it was nice to have such a wonderful view. This location is perfect for getting picked up for boating excursions, snorkeling at Black Rock or shopping at Whaler's Village. The grounds are very well maintained and always look beautiful We also enjoyed having a washer and dryer - those came in very handy. Lovely unit - we would definitely stay again. Thanks Cindy for everything!

We will definitely stay here again! Steps to the pool, beach, shops, shave ice, gelato, coffee stands, luaus, dinner sails, snorkel sails, golf, and more. Loved the well placed outdoor showers to get all of the beach sand off before going to condo. The kitchen had all of the equipment that we needed to make meals and snacks. My grandson liked the beach straw hat so much that he bought one just like it to take home. The washer and dryer in the unit was so convenient. The parking in the basement garage was also very convenient. Staff was friendly and very helpful. We had a great vacation.

I cannot say enough great things about this property. Great location, spacious, has absolutely everything you will need, super clean, great view and comfy relaxing vibe. The host was extremely fast with responses and helped us out in a pinch when some of our travel plans changed. Absolutely delightful and hope to come back soon.

June 2022
Thanks Cindy for an amazing time! We loved our stay in room 519. It's always a bonus when a unit has beach items. This one had 4 chairs, coolers, umbrella, and snorkel gear. The kitchen had all the essentials for cooking plus lots of spices. Great view from lanai...spend every morning on it with coffee and every evening with a cocktail! Washer and dryer in the unit, that was really great to have. There are lots of books to borrow if you are a reader. Cindy was wonderful and so helpful. We'd definitely stay again :)

Great place for a family of 4+!Condo has everything as other reviews. Zero issues, 5* for the view, laundry, fans and water pressure! Best location, between Black Rock and Whalers Village you have everything that is needed for great beach days, just watch for the turtles. The 6 grills (spotless) could save family’s from the restaurants it’s 10 min from Foodland and Safeway. Cindy’s condo, Turo Kuuleilani’s car, Whalers grounds, Kapalua zip lines, Tamura‘s poke’ 5*. Thanks Cindy

We loved our stay at the Whaler. The room had extras like laundry soap and dish soap. Plenty of towels and linens. Location is great next to the mall and restaurants. If you need something it’s at your finger tips. Great beach and our own lawn chairs in the room were a plus. We will be back!

My son and his wife with 2 young kids stayed in this room. Room had all the amenities with a great view. The Whaler is awesome with a fantastic beach. Unit could use a little updating (maybe new couch) but everything worked great and the person managing it, Cindi, was fantastic and checked in with us to make sure everything was great. Would highly recommend this place!

This beautiful condo is spacious, well decorated, clean and stocked with things you may need during your stay. The host Cindy is so friendly and attentive. We had a wonderful time and can’t wait to come back and stay here again!

Very easy, the staff at the whaler condos are outstanding. I wouldn’t change a thing other than visiting during whale watching season! We will be back! Fabulous views, sunsets and rainbows.

This condo was the perfect location for my husband and me along with two of our adult children. The living room has a sectional sofa that has part open into a bed and still has a large section of couch that my daughter could sleep on. We just requested extra sheets. We put the sofa bed mattress on the floor, as the bars were pretty uncomfortable. The unit is very spacious and has an updated large bathroom and shower. The large lanai was our favorite spot with an amazing view of the ocean, beach and beautiful courtyard. We appreciated the included beach chairs, and beach umbrella, along with convenient parking included. Laundry in the unit was a great perk as well! Cindy was a helpful host and easy to reach if needed. We would definitely stay here again.

We had a wonderful time on our trip to Maui, this was our 3rd stay at the Whaler, we love it there. Cindy, the property manager was wonderful, very easy to work with. The views from the balcony are incredible. In every direction. You’ll wake up every morning to the sounds of the birds singing and ocean waves lapping against the shore. Everything, and I mean E V E R Y T H I N G you need is within walking distance. Incredible restaurants (book ahead!!!), coffee shops, retail shops, excursions, and the abc store for general items. We had family stop by, and friends a few doors down. It was a great trip. They even cleaned our room midstay, which was a huge plus.
